Hotspot/share everything question
I have 1 phone and 1 tablet. So with share everything id pay 40 access for phone 10 access for tablet and whatever data plan let say 4gb for 70. My question is since the hotspot feature is free why pay the 10 access for the tablet? Cant i just pay phone access and still use my tab via hotspot from the phone? Or am i missing something

The only reason to add the tablet for $10 is so that it can be used independently of your phone by another person, or to conserve battery life on your phone or for faster data speeds if your tablet is 4g and your phone is only 3g.....otherwise I would pocket the $10 and just tether the tablet with the phone.

Finally an answer to my question. I too was wondering why I'd 10 dollars extra per month if I could tether to my phone. Now I understand so thank you.
Now just to clarify, if I pay the 10 dollars per month I run off the verizon network and do not need my phone no matter where I am. It's there, on my tablet, just like it is on my phone, yes? No?
1 more question... do you believe the average data usage is like verizon says on their website? 1-2 gigs per device?

The 1-2GB per device seems accurate on average. It trends higher if you stream audio or video.
